Do not risk turning your dream job into a nightmare. Purchase your cement tile properly sealed and ready for installation. We have applied two generous coats of a silicone based penetrating sealer to prevent grout from staining your tiles. Do your installer a favor and purchase your decorative cement tile already sealed and ready for install.
Since their debut at the French exhibition in 1850, cement (encaustic) tiles have spread their beauty world wide. These tiles will bring both a classical and modern feel to any home or business. One advantage of cement tile is its hardiness. Using a method that is over 200 years old, tile masons compress different color cements into a mold to form the entire first layer of the tile. Because their interlocking designs are not painted on the tiles directly, there is no fear of wearing off the pattern making them perfect for high traffic areas.
